Trewithen Dairy in Cornwall now supply 11 Asda stores across the South West with milk
A local Cornish business is celebrating the launch of their branded milk in a further six Asda stores across the South West – meaning it is now on the shelves at 11 Asda stores.
As Cornwall and Devon’s biggest bottler of milk, Trewithen Dairy work with 25 Cornish farms, all within 25 miles of the dairy, resulting in over 140,000 litres of milk per day coming from the BRC AA* accredited dairy in heart of the Glynn Valley in Cornwall.
This year alone, Trewithen branded milk sales have increased 70%, notably in Asda’s St Austell store, where approximately 3,000 units of milk are sold, each week, across the four milk lines.
The Clarke family, who have run Trewithen Dairy for just over 22 years, also bring the experience that comes from generations of family farming in Cornwall; having owned their own herd prior to 2001 and with Trewithen Dairy’s Greymare Farm being their home now for over 40 years.
Bill Clarke, founder and Chairman of Trewithen Dairy said: “We’re proud to be a long-standing supplier to Asda in the dairy category. We first started supplying Asda back in 2005, and following significant investment into our site and production facility, we felt it was the right time to increase the number of stores we supply, enabling more of the South West to find our brand and enjoy our milk’’.
“We also supply clotted cream, butter and yoghurt to more than 50 Asda stores across the country and we hope to see these ranges continue to grow with Asda in the near future.’’
“We have a fantastic relationship with Asda; its commitment to providing local suppliers with opportunities and the tools to grow is one of the reasons we decided to expand with them.”
Lisa Nesden, Asda’s Local Buying Manager, said: “Asda is committed to supporting local producers and we’ve worked closely with Trewithen Dairy to stock these high quality products.
“We’re very excited that more of our customers across the South West will be able to find Trewithen Dairy products on the shelves and I’m sure they will prove extremely popular with shoppers throughout the region.”
The farm, located in beautiful Lostwithiel, now has more than 150 employees, including the next generation of the Clarke family, Francis and George.
